FirstHealth of the Carolinas, in the US, has chosen Thomson Reuters Integration Discovery to integrate all the disparate data sources across its facilities.

Integration Discovery, powered by CareEvolution, will provide clinical interoperability across the healthcare system.

FirstHealth chief information officer, Dave Dillehunt, said: "The ease of implementation, combined with the rich functionality provided by Integration Discovery, will allow us to quickly achieve best-in-class interoperability throughout our healthcare system."

The technology will carry out data transformation, facilitate retrospective analytical reporting and produce actionable information for quality improvements.

According to Thomson Reuters, FirstHealth can reduce needless diagnostic tests, optimise clinician workflows and control operational costs, thereby improving performance and clinical outcomes.

Thomson healthcare business executive vice president and segment general manager, Douglas Shaw, said, "We are very pleased to partner with FirstHealth; deploying Integration Discovery is a pivotal step toward achieving a longitudinal, comprehensive patient record view that fosters accurate medical decision making."

FirstHealth, a not-for-profit healthcare system, operates three hospitals and several outpatient healthcare facilities, serving 15 counties in the mid-Carolinas.
